#ProPlantTips for Care:You’ll have the most blooms in full sun when grown in cooler climates and appreciating partial shade (afternoon shade) in hot climates, any rich, well-drained soil is perfect for Allium. Fall-planted bulbs need moderate moisture needs. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy and add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Despite being a member of the Onion family, there is no Onion smell unless the foliage is broken or crushed. Deadhead to remove spent blooms or try this trick – spray paint the dried seed heads any color you choose for unique garden décor for the rest of the summer and fall!
